****UPDATE, UPDATE, UPDATE******
I MUST BE STUPID OR NOT DOING SOMETHING RIGHT! I guess I'm nit understanding the machanics of Bodybuilding. I workout hard and try to eat right....and nothing. HELP!!
Has it really been since November that I last updated?!?
Anywho, workouts are coming along nicely....in fact I have made some personal gains in the gym.....
Like for instance, my squats are up to 310 pounds....I actually have a booty now....I KNOW!
Starting this week, I begin a 6 week lean down to show off the gains that I have made.
Let's see how that turns out!
Until next time.......(maybe I'll have some new pictures posted)
WOW, here we are....the middle of November.....the holidays are upon us.
I've been working with my new trainer (Trainer Hank) for the past 6 weeks, and I have to say....he is kicking my ass...but in a good way. I feel like I have been making progress....slowly, but that's ok. I want to make the right kind of progress. I'm still on track for my goal...10 pounds of lean muscle while dropping bodyfat in 10 months. Though my Denver trip has been moved up to April, I am still pushing toward that goal. Thank you all for the comments and emails reguarding my progress....what a great motivation you all are. I will be posting a new progress photo at the end of December.....not quite ready for that "shirtless" photo....but I promise I will post one when I reach my goal. Until next time my friends!
Good morning all....well just 11 more days until Autumn. And with the changing season, comes a change in me. I'm meeting up with a new trainer (I changed gyms last month) and I have a 10 month plan. In the next 10 months I WILL be adding at least 10 pounds of lean muscle and dropping body fat (I guess I need to find out what that is first). I will be traveling to Denver next July (10 months away), so I am making some changes and gearing up for that trip.
I will be keeping you all posted on my progress as well as my first meeting with "Hank" the trainer.
WOW, half way through August already....sorry for the delay in the update.
Well, since you last heard from me, a very nice RJ member sent me an email and offed up some nutrition advise. He sent me a breakdown for a day of muscle building food, and had some very nice things to say. That has to be one of the nicest things anyone has ever done for me.
It's been a month since starting on his "diet" plan and I have to say "I LIKE IT" I am starting to notice little changes. Also since you last heard from me I have changed gyms and Workout Routines.
I joind the "Y" which is 3 blocks from my office and about 60% gay.....The staff is very friendly and to me customer service is EVERYTHING. The last gym I was at (for over 2 years) if you weren't paying the extra money for a trainer (which was also the owners), you were pretty much never spoken to.....I don't know how I lasted 2 years there.
so now I am pushing forward and moving on.....I am starting to see some changes in my body and can't wait for the next 6 months to see what else I can do.
Any of you RJ members who are on Facebook....please look me up....Jerry Beasly
Have a wonderful August....so, until next time.
Hard to believe that the year is already half over. My goal for the next 6 months is to take this average body of mine to the NEXT LEVEL! Everyone stay tuned and see what happens.
Wow, this month just got away from me. And I totally forgot to update. Well I cometed the RJ 12 Week Muscle Building Workout. It was really intense... And I lost 8 pounds....it took me a little whe to adjust my calorie intake to the workout I was doing....got that straightened out about half way through. I did not achieve the results that I had expected....but think that that was partially my fault...due to the low calorie intake.
I am now back on my regular workout....which is actually very effective. I even had a fell RJ'er email me his Muscle Building food plan....it's pretty simple and inexpensive....we are gonna give that a whirl and see what happens. So until next time.........
Ok guys....I'm half way through week 11 of the RJ 12 week Muscle Building Workout....and it's pretty intense. At the end of Week 12 I will post a before and after pick.
Not sure if there is a lot of difference...but I'll let you all be the judge.
Think after the 12 weeks I will give myself 2 weeks of light workouts before starting again.
Just a real quick update....start week 8 of the RJ 12 Week Muscl Building Workout.
It's the same workout as week 7, but I've looked ahead to week 9 and it changes again....looks like it's going to be a little more intense. I think when I do this workout again I will add the RJ Muscle Building Meal Plan to go alone with it. I can use all the help I can get. Not sure if I'll be up for the shirtless pic just yet....maybe when I complete the workout the 2nd time around.
I am officially half way through the Real Jock 12 Week Muscle Building Workout.
I'm not sure if I've gained any muscle yet...I have had a few people tell me that my arms are looking bigger....but personally.....I don't see it. Even though while looking at the pictures here on Real Jock I totally feel out of my league...I'm going to push forward and up the intensity of my workout and see what I can accomplish. Be good everyone....stay strong and be positive!
Ok, I'm on the last week of the first half of the Real Jock 12 Week Muscle Building Workout....and I have to say....it's getting pretty intense, but in a good way. I don't think I will be where I would like to be at the end of the 12 weeks....sometimes I feel out of my leage here...but I will push on.
I will keep you all posted....and still maybe post that Shirtless Pic when I'm done with the program....we'll see. :-)
Just a quick update....just completed the first month of the Real Jock 12 Muscle Building Workout. Looking ahead...it's gonna be intense!
I did want to take a moment and say thanks to all the kind words....I know I'm not the hottest guy, or the guy with the best body...but the comments really mean a lot! :-)
Ok, Ok....I know.....it's been 4 months since my last update.
The Holidays are all over....and I can report that not too much damage occured.
I've switched up my workouts quite a bit.....from December to February I was on a 3 days on, 1 day off rotation. It worked really well.....now in March...I happened upon the 12 week Muscle Building Workout here on Real Jock. I just started week 4 today (3-28-11). I don't think I've every done as many or as many different kinds of pushups in my life. I'm usually the last person to ever see any difference in myself....so after the 12 weeks I will post a new picture....I may even be ready for a shirtless one.....not promising anything. :-)
Well fellas.....keep it sexy!
WOW, is it November already....I totally skipped over the October update....sorry fellas.
October workouts were good...cut calories because i was going on vacation the 3rd week of the month (did the Disney World Family thing....had a good time, but now back to reality.
Hitting the weigts hard....SUPERSETS all month.but a little different. 3 days inbetween the upperbody supersets and 6 days inbetween the lowerbody superset. Trainer Steve wants to see how the muscles react to more rest days between workouts. Bike riding season is over :-( so doing cardio on Tuesdays and Thursdays.....20 minute sessions of high and low intensity.
On Saturday doing the Beasley Boxing Bootcamp....something I made up....hitting the heavy bag, speed bag and such....along with very light weight circut type workout.
We the holidays are quickly approching....hope everyone has a great and joyous holiday season.....and try not to eat toooo much. Until next time.
Just wanted to give you a quick update. First of all....where in the heck did summer go?!?
Just 17 days until I head down to Orlando for a week....i know it's not the beach, but spending some quality time with my family at Disney World.
This week has beena NON-WEIGHT workout week....kind of gives the body a shock. Of course Trainer Steve is still killing me with the Wednesday AB only workout....2 sessions.
Starting Monday the 4th will be back on the Push, Pull, Leg workout until Vacation.
Then.....who knows. You may have noticed from my new profile picture that I've taking up boxing....well, sort of. A boxing workout at least....I do spar in the ring with my brother....but he beats the crap out of me. So, until next time.....or I'm out of my boxing induced coma.
Ok Peoples....it's September! Where the heck did the summer go?
Things are changing for me.....I've been doing a couple weeks of Supersets.....and I'm actually having people in the gym stop me and say how good I'm looking....It's hard for me to take compliments like that....but I'm adjusting. Added a grueling AB workout on Wednesdays and a Cardio session on Saturdays....but not just any cardio. I either do a Boxing/Bootcamp workout....or run the stadium stairs at the local university. Which ever one I do.....they kick my butt.....and make me feel great. I've been doing yoga a couple times a week in the evenings just to help with my flexibility (it's not that great). But still hitting the gym at 5am Monday - Friday.
Heading to Orlando mid October....so have some work to do still.
Until next time......
Wow, it August already....continuing with the interval training this month, with a few changes.
On Wednesdays....will be doing an Ab workout and some kick-ass cardio on Saturdays.
For example....this past Saturday ran stairs (69 steps, 16 times = 2208 steps) and in between each up and down did a Bootcamp style exercise (push up, squats, etc.). I may incorporate a boxing workout on a couple Saturdays, just to mix it up a bit. Just 2 1/2 months until my Florida vacation, so.....need to take this thing to a whole other level
Here we are, the last week of July.....It's hard to believe that the year is half over.
Still working on the Interval Training.....but shaking up the nutrition a little bit.
Usually I would eat my pre-workout meal when I wake up at 3:30, then ride my bike to my office and walk to the gym which puts me there at 5am. By the time I start my workout, an hour and a half has passed since I consumed my pre-workout meal. So, starting this week....I still get up at 3:30, but I'm not consuming my pre-workout meal until I get to my office which is at 4:30, so by the time I start my workout at 5am only 30 minutes have passes. We'll see how that goes.
I'll let you know in 2 weeks.
Well we are half way thru July (almost)......working really hard, I have just one more week of the Push, Pull, Legs workout....then it's time for a few weeks of interval Training.
I feel like I'm reaching my goals, but it's slow coming. I know I can't expect results overnight...and I'm the last person who is going to notice it. I actually did do something that I've never done before. I Rode my bike home shirtless.....it was 95 degress and sunny......but I stepped out of my shy shell and tried something different. And no-one laughed or pointed. Hmmmmm, maybe this is working.
Stay positive everyone and I will update again at the end of the month.
Well here we are.....July 1st.....Did June even happen?
quite a few things happened in June.... I turned 45.....and I'm in better shape today than I was when I was 25....so that makes me feel great. The other thing is that in the last month of workouts I have increased the weight I've been lifting quite a bit. I'm quite proud of that.....Lets me know that I'm making progress.
Trainer Steve has me doing the same Push, Pull, Leg workout for a couple more weeks...then switching to an Interval training for a couple of weeks. I've got 3 months til I'll heading to Florida....so we should be starting to lean down here shortly.
So, Until next time........
Happy June Everyone.....Well I started my new workout today. it's going to be a heavy lifting month...and I'm going to push myself to reach new heights! This month is a Push, Pull and Leg workout....Push one day, Pull one day then legs......and start over. I've done this workout several months ago....and it was very effective! So as the month progress...I'll keep you all informed.....one of these days I'm going to get to change that status from Average to Defined!
What do you all think?
Okay peoples.....I have completed my 2 week of the "300" style workout....it was pretty tuff, and i must say for a workout that only last maybe 35 minutes....I was pretty drenched from head to toe.
I'm awaiting my new workouts from Trainer Steve.....and looking forward to changing my Status from "Average" to " Defined"
I do have to tell you, that I am starting to believe those things that everyone has been saying.
just the other day.....I had a member at my gym as me....yes ME for advise and then I had 2 different members, at 2 different times tell me how good I was looking. At first I thouht this may be a plot from Trainer Steve to get me to think more positive about myself.....lol
So now.....I am starting to believe what I see in the mirror. Oh, and on 2 seperate occations, I had a guy come into my work and give me their phone numbers. Hmmm,
Keep up the good work fellas, and thank you for reading my ramblings. would love to hear from all of you....well those who actually have read this far and have gotton to this part of the "blog"
Until next time
Well here we are....the last week of May! I've been hitting it really hard for the month. This past week was a workout based on the movie "300", the workout the actors did to prepare for their roles. It was really cardio based....meaning....pull ups, push ups, clean and jerks....those sort of things. And let me tell you......by the time I was finished with the third set of the cycle....I was drenched from head to toe with sweat! I'm not quite ready to change my "Build" from Average to Defined yet....since I've been hitting the weights really hard....Trainer Steve has me consuming 4000 Calories per day....so, I am kind of feeling like a bloated pig!.. But I'm sure once we get to the lean down time.....then maybe I'll be able to change that status. I have one more week of the "300" workout, then who know's what Trainer Steve will have in store for me. Keep watching for more updates in what I am calling "Jerry's Incredible Journey" Unitl next time!
I can't believe it's may already......We for the fisrt two weeks of May, I am continuing with the Upper and Lower Body Supersets, and the Tibata workouts in between. Then for the last two weeks of the month, I will be doing the 300 workout....GO SPARTA!
Then in June.....June 3rd to be exact....I'll be turning 45....and I have never felt better in my life.
I may not be where I wanted to be physique wise....but, I will get there.....you can count on that!
This is just a quick mini update. Trainer Steve's workout for the month is a Upper Body and Lower Body Mass Building Superset Workout. So Monday and Thursday is Upper, Tuesday and Friday is Lower then on Wednesday and Saturday I do a Tabata workout. Now, not knowing what "Tabata" means, I had to look it up. Technically it is a Cardio based workout. As many reps as you can do (using proper form) in 20 seconds, rest for 10 seconds then do your next set. You do this 5 times per excerise. I have 4 different Tabata's (Chest, Legs, Sholders
